    RE: repair for rio 51 boat hull

    If theres no holes in the fiberglass? Just regelcoat it then use some two part spot puddy called ICING made by USC. you can get this stuff at your local autobody paint stores. It's used for autos&marines use. The resin you can get it at advance or autozones orNAPA or you autobody paint stores. If you need help and tips to repaire your boat,you can PM me or tell me on this post.[8D] I do autobody&paint for aliving.[8D] Here what you can do. Sand that area with 80-100 grit sand paper. Then apply the resin on that area.Sand it again and apply another coat of resin.Sand it with 80-100 get it smooth. then apply a coat of ICING and sand with block with 120-180 grit sand paper.You might have to apply another coat? If not? then your ready to prime it. Sand that area with 180-220. Prime it twise.Then you should be ready to paint. I use automotive paints that you use a spray gun with,Urothanes. But I done in rattle/spray paint,But I use automotive clears urothanse to clear it because Nitro wont harm them.
